Bonus disputes are common.
Senior executives often have complex remuneration deals which make up a significant part of their overall pay package. Sometimes the bonus arrangements are contractual, but often there is an element of employer discretion. Even discretionary bonuses can be challenged. Your employer’s misuse of its discretion can amount to a breach of your employment contract, which could give rise to a potential claim. It is not unusual for female senior executives to be paid less than male colleagues doing similar work. This may give rise to a claim for equal pay. We can help you get paid what is legitimately due to you where you think you are being unfairly underpaid.
